. >>> people who knew tamerlan tsarnaev say his life took a radical turn. a friend described it, quote, as dramatic. he and his younger brother were once known for throwing loud parties. he was a promising boxer with olympic aspirations. but that all changed when tamerlan became deeply religious. he gave up the sport, citing his muslim faith. his father was furious. he grew confrontational. he angrily disrupted a talk at a cam bridge mosque when the speaker compared the prophet hohammed and the peace activist compared him to martin luther king and tsarnaev also interrupted a tack last november when a speaker said it was fine to celebrate the safe way as the birthday of the prophet. the growing interest of religion by both tamerlan and his mother caused an upheaval in the household with tamerlan even persuading his mother to cover herself up. and so why the schachange? and did his trip to russia play a role in radicalizing this young man? joining me now is brian bender, national security reporter for the boston globe and clint van zandt. clint, what would you think would have caused suc

by authorities to help bring this man to justice or to bring him into custody rather. tamerlan and dzhokhar led them on a chase from cambridge after shooting an m.i.t. police officer. the chase led into watertown. 200 rounds were allegedly exchanged in the course of that police exchange, as well as homemade bombs thrown out of the window. that, of course, ultimately led to the death of tamerlan who was 26 years old. the older brother. dzhokhar, escaping into the night and ultimately, he was brought into custody about 26 hours after the pictures were shown to everyone all across the globe. of course, this will continue for much time to come as authorities are looking for answers as to whether or not dzhokhar and tamerlan allegedly acted alone or whether they had help in these bombings. back to you. >> molly line, reporting live for us. thank you, molly. >> that is the key question. did they have help and how will we find out if they did? more on that. >>> the stepson of the man whose boat dzhokhar tsarnaev hid in was speaking out about the chaotic situation and listen to this. >> well, speaking

, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h

, the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev seems much less confounding in that it conforms more squarely to radicalization. we know from accounts of people who knew him that he had in fact become more religious in recent months and years. "the wall street journal" reported that he gave up boxing which he trained at for years as well as drinking and smoking as he dug into religion. his uncle said he ended his relationship with tamerlan in 2009 because of the quote radical crap" tamerlan had begun to espouse. he was steered toward a strict strain of islam in recent years and he began opposing the wars in afghanistan and iraq which is i should note here not radical in and of itself but that he also turned to websites and literature claiming that the cia was behind the terrorist attacks of september 11, 2001, that jews controlled the world. there are two very specific accounts of tamerlan's recent behavior that are both fascinating and important in trying to understand how he might have become the kind of violent extremist he is accused of having been when he died after a shootout with autho

that the fbi has told you that they missed tamerlan leaving the country and going to russia because maybe his name was misspelled, that was one of the reasons given. we just heard from secretary napolitano that he did indeed, and these are her words, ping when he left the united states, and then the investigation seemed to be cleared during his time away. where ills the discrepancy? what is the truth? because it goes to the question, is our system working or isn't it? >> clearly it's not working. i'm dumbfounded wither 4 answer. i was told dar -- with her answer. i was told two nights ago in march they got a letter from the russian intelligence services that the older brother was a radical islamist, watch out for him. they claimed to have interviewed him. they interviewed his family. they went to the school he was attending and interviewed people. they sent the file back to russia in october of 2011, asked for more information and they never heard from them again and they claimed the system did not pick him going to russia in january of 2012 because the name was mis misspelled. now i hear fro
today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev before the attacks. >> why didn't the fbi follow up on that? you combine the first interrogation, the first examination plus the subsequent act. when somebody is brought to your attention, you investigate and find nothing and then he carries out murders, you wonder, didn't you miss something in the investigation? >> and today, our investigative team uncovered new details about the suspect's weapons. tamerlan and dzhokhar both carried illegal guns. neither had proper permits nor petitions and dzhokhar tsarnaev was under age. within the last hour the white house explained why the surviving suspect will go through the criminal system. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams i
intelligence agency about tamerlan as early as 2011 and actually investigated him, questioned him about radical jihadi sympathies. it came from the russian intelligence service, and the fbi says they found no evidence of criminal activities and basically let the matter stand. now, what's interesting is in january of 2012, after getting that report, after doing that investigation, he flies to russia for six months. and then returns to the country and then shortly thereafter sets up this youtube account filled with radical jihadi postings clearly indicative of sympathies with that cause. now, that's not evidence of a crime. that doesn't trigger necessarily any charges, but it's going to raise questions about what the fbi knew and when they knew it. >> okay. michael isikoff, thanks so much. please stay put because next i'm going to ask you about any other accomplices and what officials are saying today about that. thanks, michael. >>> let's get more on the suspects' international links. i'm joined by richard engel. we're glad you're here. >> thank you. >> i loved what you said on "rock center" las

named tamerlan tsarnaev. and some of the first reporting on tamerlan tsarnaev that came out late last week after the bombing, the murder of his close friend brendan mess was described as really the only tragedy that we knew of his life in america. it was described as maybe one of the turning points in his life. but that murder is not solved. the thing that was notable about that crime in waltham, that triple murder, obvious lets notable. it was an unsolved triple murder. that itself is notable. but the other thing notable about this crime is it was a particularly brutal crime scene. these were three, fit, capable young men killed with stabbing injuries to their necks. and this murder was apparently drug-related, but not in the way that drug-related crimes are usually drug-related. >> there was a girl running out of the house, saying there is blood everywhere. and there is like marijuana all over the bodies apparently. >> marijuana all over the bodies. one of the three victims in that murder had been charged with marijuana possession and the intent to distribute a few years earlier. bu

actually flee the vehicles and start shooting back at the officers older brother tamerlan puts his cruiser in gear so it begins to roll down the street. as is he out there firpg officers empty the rounds. able to move in on him and capture him. >> bill: i understand they were in very close quarters and they shot tamerlan he was shot a number of times, right? >> yes, yes, yes. he was struck by bullets. it's unclear when he suffered the fatal injuries because as they are struggling with him. as they are trying to arrest him and handcuff him, he is resisting arrest, his brother shoots out with the suv. his brother got into the suv and drives into the scene and drives into the brother. >> runs him over? >> runs him over and carries him several feet with the car. >> and the police dove out of the way. one police officer was shot, right, in the shootout not only was tamerlan shot but a cop was shot as well, right? >> a transit police officer by the name of richard donahue was shot in the leg, suffered a very serious injury but is recovering thank god. >> so then the younger, the 19-year-old he d
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
. the older brother, as you mentioned in the beginning, tamerlan, his picture on the icio gun fight overnight with police in massachusetts. what really has authorities troubled, they have locked down the 20 square block area or so in watertown that we have been discussing and we think they have pinched in on the man in the white baseball cap, but they can't be sure. what has them most concerned is that these two brothers have shown quite a bit of skill, and evidence of training. one senior law enforcement official told us a short time ago, these guys were almost textbook perfect in terms of operational planning and security. they stayed off the radar, but beyond that, they have shown a high level of sophisticatifi sod skill in terms of evading police, and when they were confronted with a police shoot-out, incredibly, one of them escaped that cordon. he made the point that there were more police officer there and the suspects were outgunned. he summed it up by saying when have you ever seen that? they don't known he might have other confederates or other plans. the search, while focused in wat
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
details about the older brother, tamerlan, and his six-month trip overseas to russia, that area, as he became increasingly more devout in his religion and radicalism. >>> here in washington, the marathon bombings have already started to change the debate on things like -- you knew this was coming -- immigration. >>> finally, life started to return to normal this weekend in boston. i was up there as the slow healing begins. this is "hardball." as we say up there, "hardball." the place for politics. >>> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was of course, white house spokesman jay carney short by before 1:00 p.m. today making clear the boston suspect will not be treated as an enemy combatant. as some republican senators includes lindsey graham called for. senator graham challenged them saying the decision they made premature. let's listen. >> here's my concern. as a lawyer for over 30 years, civilian and military, i strongly support the concept that no criminal defendant s
and tamerlan, the older brother, stood up and argued. then in january there was a praise for martin luther king jr. and he got up and called someone a hypocrite. he had to leave. >>gretchen: ostensibly this younger guy didn't know anything about the bombing until a week before. if that is true, that lends to what we were discussing this morning that he was just an underling. it brings out the story that the parents were absent. the parents had gone back to russia and this 19-year-old kid was able to be swayed by the older brother. it appears he was the one that radicalized himself. i'm not saying he's not to blame at all. >>brian: there's no way you should believe -- everyone's apparently running with this story. you've got to be kidding me. you question him for 90 seconds as he's come out of a harrowing situation like this. he's in self-preservation mode. this guy needs to be questioned for a couple of weeks, needs to see if his story line is up. then you've got to drill down on it with professional interrogators. he does not need to see his miranda rights read to him in bed. laughable. >>stev
